The Examiner’s finding does not address the recited requirement for each of the regions to have first
and second portions with the recited characteristics. All words in a claim must be considered in judging the obviousness of the claimed subject matter. See In re Wilson, 424 F.2d 1382, 1385 (CCPA 1970).
...
In re Warner 379 F.2d 1011, 1016 (CCPA 1967) (“[T]he precise language of 35 U.S.C. § 102 that ‘(a) person shall be entitled to a patent unless,’ concerning novelty and unobviousness, clearly places a burden of proof on the Patent Office which requires it to produce the factual basis for its rejection of an application under sections 102 and 103.”).

Before a proper review of the rejections under 35 U.S.C. §§ 101 and 103(a) can be performed, the subject matter encompassed by the claims on appeal must be reasonably understood without resort to speculation. Since the claims fail to satisfy the requirements under 35 U.S.C. § 112, second paragraph, we are constrained to reverse, pro forma, the Examiner’s rejections under 35 U.S.C. §§ 101 and 103(a). See In re Steele, 305 F.2d 859, 862 (CCPA 1962) (A prior art rejection cannot be sustained if the hypothetical person of ordinary skill in the art would have to make speculative assumptions concerning the meaning of claim language.); see also In re Wilson, 424 F.2d 1382, 1385 (CCPA 1970) (“If no reasonably definite meaning can be ascribed to certain terms in the claim, the subject matter does not become obvious-the claim becomes indefinite.”)

As the court in In re Wilson, 424 F.2d 1382 (CCPA 1970) stated:

[a]ll words in a claim must be considered in judging the patentability of that claim against the prior art. If no reasonably definite meaning can be ascribed to certain terms in the claim, the subject matter does not become obvious -- the claim becomes indefinite.
